Banana Republic is ok too. What's great about BR is that when you have their card and become luxe (spending $800/yr) they offer free basic alterations. Lucky for me, they have a tailor on staff at my location and so I get free basic alterations, but also a great deal on more advanced alterations.
I am a 42R when it comes to blazers, so I can usually buy off the racks. Do you usually go for suits or are you ok with just sport coat/blazer?
Off topic, but since when did suit separates become so popular? I remember when buying suits meant pants came with the blazer lol.
I buy shirts from Express, but not suits. I agree that suit separates are strange. I never buy them, ever.
Interesting note about BR, I would look into it if I shopped their more. I find that they don't have the frequent sales like Express does.
I have purchased suits at S&K when they were going out of business. So, I got a good deal.
If I want a suit now, I will get at Marshalls, TJ Maxx, Ross, or the Goodwill in a nice area.
I'm a 44L. When I buy this size, the pants are normally ridiculously long. All of my suits have been to the tailor, except one. That one is on it's way.
